The consulate of El Salvador in Omaha celebrated the National Day of Salvadorans Abroad on November 26 with the preview of the documentary series Traveling with the Diaspora in which the different dimensions of success they have achieved outside the Central American country were shown.

At the headquarters of the consular delegation at 11422 Miracle Hills Drive suite 205, in Omaha, Nebraska, Consul Jackeline Cortelo thanked her compatriots for being part of the diaspora that is representing the country with effort and work.

“We hope that next year we can invite the entire diaspora (from Kansas and Nebraska) to celebrate and commemorate this important date for us,” she told Hola America.

About 20 people attended the event and were able to watch as a prelude the first episode of the documentary series Traveling with the Diaspora, which highlighted the story of three businesswomen in Turkey, Spain, and the United States.

This production was carried out with the joint support of the Foreign Ministry, Channel 10 (of El Salvador), and the Ministry of Communications of that country.

However, the official broadcast was last Sunday, December 10, which was broadcast on national television Channel 10 and through its Facebook page. If you want to see it again click here.

Consul Cortelo pointed out that the diplomatic mission will serve all Salvadorans with the good treatment they deserve.

“Our compatriots abroad are the first ambassadors of our country. When we represent and work, we raise the name of El Salvador high. All ideas, all of them become like our first Ambassadors,” she said.

She added that the government of Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele considers the diaspora as a partner for development: “That is why the need to link them with the country from a social, economic, political and cultural perspective has been recognized and to make the stories visible, recognizing that Many of them had to leave our country and they never lost the connection with our beloved El Salvador.”

With only a month in office, the diplomat has captivated Salvadorans in Omaha, attending community events.

From Hola America, you are welcome, and much success in your career.
